The Best Ten Colleges in London & the U.K

College level instruction in England began in 1096. In 1167, King Henry II officially prohibited English citizens from studying at the University of Paris. Today, the United Kingdom (UK) offers over 100 schools of higher education with more than 50 in the city of London. The 2009 Times Higher Education-World University Rankings placed four UK colleges in the world's top ten

University of Oxford
The world's oldest English-speaking University consists of 39 colleges and 100 separate libraries. A faculty of nearly 4,500 instructs over 12,000 undergraduates and 6,000-plus graduate students in programs ranging from the Fine Arts and Economics to Philosophy, Languages and Mathematics.

University of Cambridge
Founded in 1209, Cambridge today consists of 31 independently operating colleges. Instruction includes seminars, lectures and practical instruction from world experts. Over 4,000 full-time instructors teach 6,000 graduate and over 30,000 undergraduates in degree programs ranging from Anglo-Saxon studies and Classics to medicine, music and engineering.

Imperial College London

Imperial College offers education in three faculties (Engineering, Natural Sciences and Medicine), a Business School, Department of Humanities, Graduate School of Engineering and Physical Science and Graduate School of Life Sciences and Medicine. Known for scientific education and research, a faculty of 3,000 teaches over 13,000 students. Graduates and faculty have started nearly 100 UK companies, and the staff regularly consults for government, corporations and non-profits on scientific and technical matters.

A faculty of over 870 teaches courses in over 50 disciplines to roughly 6,000 undergraduates and 1,300 graduate students. The university is located in Fife, where almost one in three inhabitants either attend, or work for, the university.

In 1855, University College London (UCL) became the UK's first school to offer a fully secular education to both genders. Today, UCL consistently ranks among the world's top five universities, with a reputation built on research and scholarship in all disciplines.
